Hats and mitts for Christmas

I made these sets as Christmas presents for a 3-year-old and a 7-year-old girls. I hope they like them!


First the turqoise set (Pinja's set from Ullaneule)


For the hat, I CO 104 stitches and made the hat with 3,5mm dpns. The hat is ca 18 cm long - I made the first version too short, had to rip back to knit more rows. The mitts were made 100% according to the instructions.


The yarn is 7-Veljestä Moniraita (I think).

I'll swatch next time, promise!

A word (or a picture) of warning to all you out there who won't swatch. Remember my hat I was knitting a week back? Here it is knitted up. Nice, huh? 


I thought it just might be a big too big for anyone, so I simply frogged it.

Now I'm thinking should I try to knit the hat again, or just to use the yarn for something else.


The hat was really fun to make; I actually got a serious knitting need last monday and practically finished it in a few hours.
